Interior – Main Level
It is truly a challenge to do justice to the quality, craftsmanship, and benefits of this fabulous home in a presentation such as this…..And while a picture may be worth a thousand words, even those offered can’t capture the idyllic “feel” of 142 Woodpecker Way and its setting…….But from the moment you enter the Main Level via the solid wood door (framed by sidelights and transom), you will indeed experience this wonderful “feel” – from the large, welcoming Foyer; to the spacious Living Area flooded with natural light by the wall of windows overlooking Lake Petit; to the stunning lake and mountain views beyond…….from the pegged-wood floors and the double-crown molding, to the handsome custom cabinetry throughout .
Offering one of two entries to the front of home, this large Foyer opens up to the spacious Great Room while separating the 2-Car Garage from the heart-of-the-home.
